It is important you are aware that solid-state drives have their cons and pros. There is no lie in the fact that they possibly do not have a lifespan that is long enough to match that of a hard drive, but the speed with which they process data makes up for everything. The minute you make use of a Solid State Drive, you will observe how sluggish the Hard disk drive can be. We have invested time to put together a list of internal Solid State drives which could be referred to as the best SSD for PS4, and we made sure that there is enough diversity included to satisfy just about everyone’s needs.
Samsung 860 EVO
This compact SSD is just about what one should expect it to look like – minimal, clean, matte black finish and with a thin 2.5-inch frame. The thing very unique with this product and which is also one of the reasons SSD’s are popular is the 5-year warranty offered by the manufacturers
It is important you are aware that the Samsung 860 EVOI comes with five different storage options: 4TB, 2TB, 1TB, 500GB, and 250GB. In addition, it has a 520/540 MB/s write/read speed, which when compared to the hard drive is extremely fast but very much average for Solid State drives in this league. The 860 EVO interface via a SATA III connection, thus allowing a theoretical max bandwidth of 6Gbit/s. It is without a doubt capped at about 650 MB/s.
In conclusion, the Samsung 860 EVO is without a doubt, not the fastest Solid State Drive neither is it fit for use with a professional workstation, however, a gamer can hardly do better, in terms of endurance, it greatly improved compared to the 850 EVO that preceded it. When that is combined with its decent price and the 5-years warranty it comes with, then you can have an idea why the Samsung 860 EVO, just as its predecessor, is very much popular.
Samsung 960 PRO
Just after the EVO, there are more serious solutions from Samsung, one of which is the 960 PRO. The Samsung 960 PRO takes the appearance of a discreet and small card that blends with most setup seamlessly. It also comes with 5years warranty, however, it is somewhat costly and it is without a doubt about 4 times faster than the Samsung 860 EVO
When it comes to storage capacity, the 960 PRO is limited to fewer models: 2TB, 1TB, and 512GB. It is important you are aware of how fast the 960 PRO is, it is with a 2100/3500 MB/s write/read speed, leaving most Solid State Drives in the dust. These high numbers are as a result of the higher throughput enables by the M.2 slot, compared to a SATA port, together with the latest NVMe technology.
With everything that has been said, it is only right to say that the Samsung 960 PRO is the popular demand version of the 850 EVO. Just as mentioned earlier it comes with 5-years warranty, although the hefty price per gigabyte (which is actually double of the 850 EVO) and its mind-boggling performance will make it particularly appealing for professional and hardcore enthusiasts.
